the penalty phase from midmarch and when kathleen sebelius was asked about that she said no. there is a practical reason, forget the politics of it. if you give the young healthy people more time to sign up, then there's the danger they will not sign up and the premiums will go up for the older people. it is an income redistribution plan. young people put in their premium money and don't demand a lot in services and so that money will go to pay for the extra benefits for older and sicker people. if you don't have the first part older sicker people will get sticker shock and creates more political problems. >> is there a dead line for that end of november or first of the year or -- >> i would think. not necessarily. i think he could go into early next year. no one faces penalty in the individual mandate until the 30th of march. >> 16 democrats, of them are they all up for reelection or most of them? >> no. most of them. the 15 seats, 16 seats, democrats are defending and some of those in montana. max ba cchus retired. and every democrat who is up for election. and they are al

services officials are there. days later kathleen sebelius says we're right on track to rolling out flawlessly october 1. are we to assume there was such a culture of intimidation or no drama within the white house that no one has had the courage or the responsibility enough to prime the president and say i just saw a presentation. this fall is going to be scary on the rollout? >> what is curious about that is kathleen sebelius was in the meeting. she was there. marilyn tavenner who runs c.m.s., they were there. they heard. one of the things mackenzie said was if your website is not working, the call centers can't get the stuff into the system. we found that out the hard way. they also said there is no single person in charge. this is a giant bureaucracy. you need a project manager. but the federal government said we can handle it. they couldn't. meanwhile it gets even worse. according to -- so that was that. they knew. they knew going back. how many times do we hear the president and his surrogates say if you like your plan, you can keep it? they have known for years that tens of m
obama himself to health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius has apologised for the website's problems and vowed to fix it. we are hearing conflicting reports about what went wrong with the roll out. cgi, the contractor developing the site may have warned the obama administration that it would not be ready tro go live on october 1st. we know the administration says it needs until the end of november to fix the technical glitches. that's two months after it launched. to comment the penalty for not enrolling under the new law is effectively waved for six weeks. the new deadline will be march 31st. if you are one of the estimated 15 million americans who buy your own insurance, you are not employed through an employer or insured through an employer, you have to sign up for coverage by the deadline or face a penalty. you can do that through your insurer or go to the government changes, assuming healthcare.gov works one day. >> 8.5 million of 15 million could qualify for a subsidy. the affordable part of the affordable care act may be a misnomer for 6.5 millions that didn't quali

to help the law and keep the law in place. remember this, now the president can fire kathleen sebelius as health secretary and put somebody in of highs choosing. now the president can do whatever he wants at the epa the president can do all kinds of things that republicans and moderate democrats. he can with executive authority do exactly whatever he wants. martha: you're so right, chris. this is a huge moment and big game-changer for all the reasons that you just detailed. h. really you try to sort of figure out what the discussion has been in the oval office and in the west wing. they know they're in a dire situation and they need to change the scheme but it does appear they will start a hold the ball and literally try to push it through the defensive line and make it go into the touchdown zone they're hoping. so talk to me a little bit about the possibility that you just brought up. are we about to see a change of some of the players in this game? >> well, one of the reasons, and you, we talked about it before, one of the reasons that everybody said that kathleen sebelius was safe a

neat to look at. >> aides to hhs secretary kathleen sebelius confirmed on wednesday that the web site won't be ready to handle small businesses' purchases of health insurance for their employees until this time next year, prompting this response from republican national committee chairman. with each passing day, it's clear how much worse obamacare is than a web site full of glitches. yet again the administration has made a wholesale change to their signature piece of legislation because of the disastrous impact it is having on americans. it's time we stop delays pieces of obamacare, he concluded, and scrap it and start over with common sense reforms. uninsured individuals who want to avoid paying that fine must purchase their health coverage by march 31. back to you in new york. >> thank you, james rosen, from d.c. >> thanks. >>> as the deadline approaches, we've seen a couple of closed door meetings taking place with democrats who are concerned certainly about their reelection and want to go find out from the administration what exact israeli going to happen. we know vice president b

ways, torte reform. the president brought in kathleen sebelius ahead of the trial association for 11 years. we need torte reform so the doctors don't have to order too many tests. the pre-existing conditions, i think, should be pooled to an assigned risk where they have to pay more, similar to what is current. i was able to get insurance when i was younger but the state required the insurance companies provide that pool. i'd also like to agree with the gentleman from pennsylvania about the federal reserve. i wonder if most americans see that it's a board of international bankers that decide our interest rates. host: reid, we have a lot of topics there. let's have the congressman respond. guest: reid, let's start with medical liability. you mentioned that. when the health care law was first being driven through congress in 2009, i remember being summoned to the white house, abdur-rahim was the chief of staff. he had -- rahm emanuel was the chief of staff. he had me and some other republicans up to chat and i raised the issue of medical liability reform in that meeting and rahm said we

. secretary kathleen sebelius is here to discuss the affordable care act. just like medicare part d, the launch of the website has not gone well. but the early glitches in this rollout will soon be forgotten, just like medicare part d. a lot of the discussion will focus on the website. this is an important issue. i want to learn what the secretary can tell us about the problems and how they will be fixed. we should keep this issue in perspective. the affordable care act is working. it has been improving the health security of millions of americans for the past three years. because of the affordable care act more than 7 million people on medicare have saved more than $8 billion on their prescription drugs. more than 100 million americans have access to free preventive coverage. they no longer face lifetime limits on their coverage. over 10 million americans have received rebates from insurance companies. finally, this january, the worst abuses of the insurance industry will be halted. never again will a family be denied coverage because their child has a chronic health condition. nev
men and women serving as part of the healthcare fraud prevention and whichment team or heat, kathleen sebelius and i launched more than four years ago to recover taxpayer dollars and keep our people safe and to aggressively punish fraud and misconduct wherever it is found. the alleged conduct is shameful and it is unacceptable. it displayed a reckless indifference to the safety of the american people and the thetituted an abuse of public trust showing a blatant disregard for systems and laws designed to protect the hotel. as our filings made clear, these are not victimless crimes. americans trust medications prescribed for their parents and grandparents, for their children and for themselves. they are selected because they are in the patient's best interest. andlaws enacted by congress the enforcement efforts of the fda provide important safeguards to ensure that the drugs are are approved for uses that are safe as well as effective. efforts by drug companies to introduce their drugs into interstate commerce for unapproved uses subvert those laws. likewise, payment of kickbacks underm

that if they liked their health care plan they could keep it, period. it goes back to a time when kathleen sebelius, secretary of h.h.s. said, if you like your health care plan, you can keep it. it goes back to a time when the majority who passed the legislation in the house and in the senate said, if you like your health care plan, you can keep it. period. i thank the chairman for his leadership. i thank the speaker. yield back my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from california. mr. waxman: mr. speaker, i yield two minutes to the gentleman from oregon, member of the ways and means committee , mr. blumenauer. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from oregon is recognized for two minutes. mr. blumenauer: thank you. i appreciate the gentleman's courtesy. the expectation that somehow the elements of the affordable care act would not be implemented is simply false. people can keep health insurance, but there are always going to be the new standards to make sure that people no longer have insurance in name only. that's what we heard about repeatedly in th
to overstate that. kathleen sebelius has taken responsibility. she has said she is to blame for this. responsible? what could the government has done differently? guest: i do not know who had their fingerprints all over this and who did not. the fundamental mistake was not doing what a number of mistakes, including massachusetts, have done. to set up an independent or new agency to run the exchange. there are 2 sets of initiatives required to implement reform. one is a whole set of hhslations, which i think has done a reasonably good job of doing under pressure. the other element is to create a new marketplace. formmercial enterprise which the traditional agencies are not well-suited. a number of the states that have done exchanges have set up semi- independent agencies with a board of directors appointed by the governor and others. fcc.the sec or the a newere able to develop function for government rather than logic it in in in 60 -- existing agency. host: do they permit medical underwriting? the: it is important with aca and the rest of the country. we had a series of reforms that
from administration officials and kathleen sebelius essentially saying no one should get in the wake of a woman's reproductive rights and her doctor. that is the issue the court ultimately will have to decide, correct? absolutely. supporters of the law say it is necessary to protect women's rights, and of -- part of the affordable care act act to make sure women have preventable screenings. they also say leading religious business owners off the hook when it comes to contraception to allowinghe door businesses to interfere with her own personal health care choices. there have been a couple of cases working their way through the court system on the issue of earth control mandate. it is not necessarily a surprise that the court decided to take up the case yesterday, but certainly going to be a much cheap-watched case when oral arguments happen next round. on thist me follow up point. obviously the supreme court has taken up the larger issue of the constitutionality of the affordable care act. this creates another political battle for the white house. absolutely. going to be a heated an
do have the latest is kathleen sebelius, who is the hhs secretary, has a little squib in huffington post, and these are issues, calling them holiday shopping tips for using healthcare.gov. and essentially, what she's saying, i'll give you some of them. she says shop healthcare.gov. that, again, is that website, the troubled website, during off-peak hours. mornings, nights, and weekends. then second, have your income and tax information ready when you logon. and comparison shop to get the best deal. so these are some suggestions, but behind the scenes, they have this team of tech experts who are working around the clock, trying to get to the point. it won't be a final fix, at least that's what they're saying. i think probably trying to downplay some of the expectations. it won't be a final fix, but they want to get it to the point where they can get 55,000 people or so online at the same time. not more -- possibly overwhelming it. there are a lot of technical fixes, but we will see because tomorrow is the deadline. they're self-imposed. they set it up, we'll see if they can meet it.
